The CME Group production environment supports order entry, market data, and clearing transactions with CME Group. It is assumed customers have tested their applications for functionality, performance, and robustness in CME Group’s certification and test environments and against CME Group-provided test suites in CME AutoCert. In some circumstances, firms may be required to certify their application’s functionality as a prerequisite to accessing the production environment.

CME provides multiple IP addresses for connectivity in production and disaster recovery. To locate port and multicast addresses, refer to the CME Globex Market Data Platform Production and Replay Channel Definitions via the FTP site: MDP 3.0 - FTP Site Information.

CME Connection Agreement

A series of forms to obtain access to the production environment, the CME Connection Agreement, must be completed, submitted to and approved by CME Group. The connectivity information from these forms will be forwarded to a CME Group network engineer. These forms and instructions for completion are available at www.cmegroup.com/connectionagreement. Please contact CME Global Account Management with any additional questions.

For new customers requesting connectivity, the following forms are required:

  • Schedule 1 – CME Connection Agreement
  • Schedule 2 – Access Request and Information Form
  • Schedule 6 – Clearing Firm Guarantee & Acknowledgment
  • Market Data License Agreement

For existing customers requesting changes to their connectivity, the following form is required:

  • Schedule 5 – Additions, Deletions and Changes

For existing customers requesting connectivity at a new location, the following form is required:

  • Schedule 2 – Access Request and Information Form
